Arlington's Elite Experiment with Taxpayers' Money

According to the October 14 edition of the weekly Sun-Gazette, Arlington County has spent at least $140,000 for a 'day-labor pavilion' on South Four Mile Run to help "mostly Latino" day laborers. However, Barbara Favola (D), chairman of the Arlington County Board, told residents of the South Arlington Barcroft neighborhood, "It has not been the best marriage we ever created." The paper noted she also told residents at a 'candidates' night' that workers "don't want to be corralled in one area." Not to worry, though, the Sun-Gazette reported, "Favola said that if the day-laborer situation in Sourth Arlington could be made a success, it could be replicated in other parts of the county." Ah yes, the 'good things' the elites do for the rest of us.
